    Rude 2 Supercharger slip question

    I just checked my slip on my Rude 2 after 40 hours & the slip was 21n-m lbs. I swear the last time I set it to 17n-m lbs. Is it possible for the slip to get higher? I'm riding a 06 RXT. I re-torqued the shaft nut by the washers to 30n-m & I still got 19n-m lbs slip. Do I need to get the slip to 17n-m lbs-18n-m lbs or am I OK with 19n-m lbs? I don't want to break the shaft. I'm a rec rider. Any advise? Is there a reason the slip can go higher? (like hammering it hard & backing it off too easy)

    Dave, are you reading torque in Newton Meters?

    For a 2 rude 14-16 ft lbs/20 NM slip is all that's needed.

    Also, do not under any circumstances over torque the nut on the supercharger shaft any higher than 22 ft lbs. (30 NM) Tightening this nut tighter will not make the slip higher.

    To answer your original question, no you will never get a higher torque reading over time. The slip always drops lower.

    Yes, meters, not lbs. My mistake. I thought my torque on slip looked higher & just wanted to be sure there wasn't any chance of it somehow getting higher over time. I didn't see how it could, but still I had to ask the question. With this much boost, I wasn't sure what could happen. I know it was hard getting my slip correct the first time because if the slip is over 30N-m the slip will stop & the nut will tighten. With that kind of fine line, I was surprised to find my slip so high after so many hours. Thanks for the info Jerry. I'll re-loctite the nut to 30N-m & keep the slip at 19 N-m.

    if you had the impeller nut loose while you were setting your clutch slip and tightened it after the slip can go up. you have to have the impeller nut torqued BEFORE you torque the clutch nut otherwise you could move the collar on the shaft.
